Linking cells between multiple project sheets

I would like to link cells from one project to another, but the option is grayed out (not available to select) when i right click on the cell. Any suggestions? thanks!

    Hey @mdevlin

    What Permission do you have on that sheet?

    Is the finish date a part of the automatically added project managment columns?

    If you have dependencies enabled in the sheet (typical for a project plan), then the Finish date is calculated automatically based on the duration and other dependencies. So, since this is a calculated column, the sheet does not allow you to select a specific finish date as a cell link from another sheet.

    If you need this ability you'll have to disable Dependencies (found under Project Settings). The downside is that you lose the automatic cascade of dates.

    If you found my comment helpful any reaction, Insightful, Awsome etc... would be appreciated🙂

  • Awesome, thanks! I also learned that if the task does not have any predecessors/dependencies, then the START date can be linked from another sheet.

    To get around linking the finish date, I simply added a task/row and made the duration 1 day only. The start date is successfully linked to another sheet.
